Artemis, the goddess of moon and hunt, is the daughter of Zeus and Leto, As well as a slightly older twin sister to Apollo. When she was a newborn goddess, she went to her father, Zeus, and asked that she would never be forced to marry. Which he granted, encouraged she also asked for a fleet of fifty nymphs and a pack of hounds to hunt with. Which he also gave her, she then went and caught four hinds with gold antlers and strapped them to her silver chariot. Once Artemis was bathing naked with her nymphs when the hunter, Acteon, saw her while hunting. Artemis was furious and ordered Acteon not to talk. He then directly disobeyed this order. So Artemis turned him into a stag and sent his own hunting dogs after him.
